The UNDP invites application for the Policy research and SDG Integration Internship. The United Nations Development programme is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. SDG Integration is at the core of UNDP’s Global Policy Network (GPN), which is leveraged and engaged in the delivery of integrated support to countries on implementation and monitoring of the 2030 Agenda. UNDP’s offer on SDG integration is anchored on four key enabling services areas, including Integrated Policy Solutions; SDG data, metrics, and analytics; Knowledge and Innovation; and SDG finance. The SDG Integration team works closely with the Strategic Policy Engagement team to mobilize partnerships and drive research on innovative policy solutions and approaches to an integrated support on the SDGs.
Moreover, Policy research and SDG Integration Internship will focus on (a) helping develop and pilot new approaches for delivering integrated support to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda; and (b) supporting research on a broad range of sustainable development issues, including the impact of disruptive global trends and opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution for developing countries.
